Capacity development

Linkages across the Continuum of HIV Services for Key Populations Affected by HIV Project (LINKAGES), is a five-year effort funded by the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). Its ultimate goal is to reduce HIV transmission among key populations — sex workers, men who have sex with men, transgender persons, and people who inject drugs — and to improve their enrollment and retention in care. Through LINKAGES, Pact strengthens key population (KP) communities by supporting capacity development (CD) of KP-serving organizations through sub-grants, organizational development guided by institutional strengthening plans, leadership development, visits to learning sites, South-to-South (S2S) mentoring and establishing communities of practice. The purpose of this assessment is to describe and analyze the performance of CSOs Pact has supported under LINKAGES. Determining the extent of CD success under LINKAGES at midline enables the team to better tailor and adapt CD activities to the individual needs of CSOs.
